Queue Predictions Available For IW Queues

About 6 months ago, FeedFliks added the ability to try and surface some real gems in your DVD Queue by checking what titles in your DVD Queue Netflix thinks you’ll like the most. Given the popularity of this feature and the growing adoption of Streaming, we’ve extended this sorting ability to your Instant Queue as well. Under your IW Queue section on your FeedFliks page, you’ll be able to view your IW Queue sorted by NF’s predicted rating. We’re sure this will help you find (and watch instantly!) titles you might have been neglecting.

Further, we’ve added the sort options to the DVD and IW Queue detail pages too.

Queue Predictions are a Premium feature. New users will be able to see Predictions for a full month after joining FeedFliks.

A million dollar idea to improve your Queue

Life is short and your queue is long. http://feedfliks.com/size-of-queue tells us that almost half of you have over a 100 titles in your Queue. That’s too many to keep track of in your head and, chances are, that title in position 235 is never going to be watched. Which is ok except that Netflix might think that you’ll like Movie # 235 more than all the hundreds of movies ahead of it. Netflix recently gave away $1 Million to improve their ┬ámovie recommendation algorithm so it’s likely Netflix has a pretty good guess as to how much you’d like a particular movie.

Wouldn’t it be cool to run your big Queue by Netflix and ask if there are any gems lurking far, far below in your Queue? You can now do that with FeedFliks. Just head to your account page and look for the ‘Analyze your Queue’ section (it’s near the bottom) and hit the ‘Yes, do it’ link and you’re done! (If you haven’t signed up for FeedFliks yet, you should!)
